there was a spot earlier and this spot where you say he is probably floating you fairly often or at least will bet when checked to. Why not call the turn bet and let him continue to bet the river with his air/weaker hands instead of letting him fold to the jam?

So far one of the best videos I've ever seen on DC. This is a great example of what not to do as a student and how important it is as a teacher to be direct.

Dani,

Very good job. Hard not to get a little excited/irritated with students like this.

Gugel,

You don't listen very well/if at all. You need to let the expert(Dani) talk. I've had a number of students like you and it will be very difficult for you to improve if this is how you interact with your coach. Asking questions is one thing, what you're doing during the video is much different and extremely counterproductive for you and coach.

As far as the AQ hand goes. Betting the turn is waaaaaay better than checking and assuming that he floats often enough to make checking better than betting is just wrong. You're right, when has 9x or the like, you're prob. not getting any more value, but that doesn't matter. Not stacking a hand like AT is a giant error here. And like Dani said, they're going to check that type of hand back on the turn way more often than they should at these stakes.

And if you did think he's floating a ton, check raising the turn is crazy. Check/call and check river.

I agree with this, but don't let that discourage you. It is really important to iron out these inconsistencies in your thought process. As poker players (or even just people in general) we get wrapped up in our own thought processes and they become second nature to the point where we do things without any longer questioning them. It's really important to make sure that these internal processes are logically sound.

I was going to write something up about this hand but this covered it better than I could voice out my thoughts.

Great vid guys!

This was all an elaborate ploy to get unlimited action. Yes...that's the ticket.

This was a truly entertaining and interesting vid, and another proof for the fact that the dynamic between the characters is the essential engine of a good movie. Btw is Gugel Ansky's cousin or little brother or something?

Anyway, you make more of this, I'll watch it.
